    Arsene Wenger has done a lot for Arsenal, and has turned them into a money-making machine.

    This might not be what most fans think about or even want, but in today's economical situation, what Arsene has done is truly magnificent. 

    Many believe that Arsenal should sign some very expensive, talented players to join the team, but Arsene Wenger has always been against paying too much for players, and so players that cost more than £20 million are out of the picture completely. 

    With five moderately priced players, Arsenal could improve greatly and hopefully win trophies next season. 

Marco Storari

    Marco Storari had a great season last year, and has followed that with an even better one this year at Juventus.

    Juventus have won many games because of his great reading of the game and his ridiculous reflexes.

    He also has great winning mentality and is always motivating the other players of the team.

    Unfortunately, with Buffon fit Storari can only sit on the bench and its a crime to bench a man of his skill and talent.

    He is 33 and at around £2-4 million would be a great addition for the next three-to-four years.


Gary Cahill

    Gary Cahill is probably the person that could solve all the back-line problems of Arsenal.

    He has been performing at the highest level for a couple of seasons and is now ready for Arsenal.

    Should Wenger sign him, Arsenal will have one of the best center-back partnerships next season.

    Cahill will cost around £15-17 million and at 25 would be great for five-to-six seasons at least. 

Eljero Elia

    Pacy, tricky and hugely talented, Eljero Elia is the unpredictable attacking spark that Arsenal need.

    Elia is a right-footed left winger who can run at players and either shoot or deliver the final ball with both feet.

    With the purchase of dutch, Samir Nasri would return to his favourite attacking midfielder role.

    He is 24 and would cost around £10-12 million.

Felipe Melo

    Felipe Melo had the worse of seasons last year. But this season, he went from the most hated and worst Juventus players to one of the best and most consistent performers

    He has kept things tight in the midfield, makes good decisions and protects the defensive line excellently.

    He would offer some great passing and composure in the defensive midfield position and would dictate the midfield zone for Arsenal.

    Melo also has been very good in big games and has kept players like Sneijder and Pastore quiet.

    Wenger has always been an admirer and so should not mind paying a bit extra for the player

    At 27, he would provide a great dimension to Arsenal's midfield and would cost around £17-20 million.


David Trezeguet

    Probably most of you will disagree with me about this one.

    The truth is that Arsene Wenger lacks in a player that can be turned to when the opposition sits deep in their own half and cut off the slick, short passing of Arsenal. Chamakh is talented but needs more time and experience to be able to be the strong and quick thinking front man.

    David Trezeguet provides just what arsenal need, great aerial threat and finishing skills and would be a great player to have on the bench.

    he has great experience with 10 years at Juve, and 235 goals with France, Monaco, Juventus and Hercules.

    This season he joined the La Liga new comers Hercules and ,with little service from the midfield, has score 11 in 29 games (one against Madrid and two against Sevilla).

    Trezeguet is 33 and will be available for free, according to what agent Antonio Caliendo told Radio Kiss Kiss
